Snapchat recently released a new feature called snap maps. This location based map allows users to see where their contacts are, as well as seeing location-based photos and videos. The Snap Map shows a user's Bitmoji, their cartoon avatar within Snapchat, pinpointed on a world map. Users can then zoom into the map to see the location of their friends.
This new feature can be potentially very dangerous as it allows others to see your exact location and places you visit which could land in the hands of strangers.
Bullybusters has the following advice for anyone who uses Snapchat. Sharing your location can be a dangerous thing to do so remember to:
How to make your location private in Snap Maps:
Whilst in Photo-taking mode, pinch the screen to open your snap map
